About This Wine
From Red Hill vines planted in sand over brown loam; 100% whole-bunch fermentation for 22 days; maturation in old oak for 9 months; bottled unfined and with only minimal sulphur. Again, a super complex nose with grassy, green fig, and green capsicum notes leading to a balanced and perfumed palate with a rich texture and some green pear to add to the characters already mentioned as well as a pronounced salinity and a touch of Jalapeno Chili on the close. Complex would be an understatement!
Mornington Peninsula Wines
South of Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula grape growing region has a cool, maritime climate that is most known for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay production. Other varieties that have seen some success here include Pinot Gris and Tempranillo.
However, it does seem that Pinot Noir is their focus judging from the fact that The Mornington Peninsula International Pinot Noir Celebration is held once every two years. The event displays the region’s capabilities in making some of Australia’s finest Pinot Noir in front of local and international audiences.
